LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) -- A Cowlitz County Superior Court judge wished he could sentence a Longview embezzler to more than 90 days in jail on Tuesday, but he had to follow sentencing guidelines.

Judge Stephen Warning also ordered 55-year-old Roxane Justine Ramey of Longview to pay $120,000 in restitution to her former employer, the Cowlitz Credit Union.

The Daily News reports (http://is.gd/LMTyDg) Ramey pleaded guilty to theft.

Prosecutors say she gambled away most of the money at a casino.
